Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich

As a law intern in Louisiana, Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich worked on the case of murderer and pedophile Ricky Langley, convicted of killing a six-year-old boy. The process of researching the case shook Marzano-Lesnevich’s judicial beliefs and forced her to confront events from her past that paralleled the case. She has now developed this story into a true crime memoir, The Fact of a Body, which Kirkus has called “a powerful evocation of the raw pain of emotional scars.” Marzano-Lesnevich earned her JD from Harvard University, her MFA from Emerson College, and her BA from Columbia University. She is an instructor in GrubStreet’s Memoir Incubator and an adjunct lecturer in public policy at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. She received a fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts in 2014.
